Mind Blowing

Thoughts and other crap on people, life and maybe footie...
My Haiku:
I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.
The age is older.
The stories are true.
This blog is mine.

I want to be the next YouTube superstar

I think all good things should be shared.

I'm talking about Marie Digby.

Some of you may recognise the name while others may draw a blank face. Who is she? Why, she's Internet's Flavour of the Month (could be the Year). She's the voice behind the catchy acoustic version of Rihanna's Umbrella (you know, ella ella ella).

I know a lot of people have blogged about her and she's all over the radio nowadays, even in our humble country. And even though only a handful of people read my blog here but heck, I think she deserves an extra fan or two. I fell in love with the song the first time I heard it on radio a couple of weeks back. A quick Google on "acoustic rihanna umbrella" to download the song illegally, revealed her video on YouTube. I was impressed.

Now this is what a true Internet superstar should be. Not Tila Tequila with her gazillion friends on MySpace, or lonelygirl15 who wasn't really lonely at all. This is about unearthing an unknown talent and well, you could say her looks played a part as well. A cute chick on 6 strings? Can anything else be more sexy?

That's the power of Web 2.0 for you. No wonder Time named 'You' as Person of the Year. Here's Marie making her debut on national TV on Carson Daly's show. Looks a bit nervous, but aren't we all? I don't usually post YouTube clips on my blog but for Marie's sake, takpelah. Plus, she's half-Japanese so kenalah tolong warih-warih kito :P
